The Arthrex StepPlate, designed by leading foot and ankle surgeons, allows the surgeon to dial-in the desired correction with incremental steps of 5mm, 7.5mm and 10mm. Plates create a firm buttress to prevent redisplacement of a calcaneal-sliding osteotomy. This is a quick technique which requires little or no fluoroscopy for insertion. Better patient satisfaction is achieved due to not violating the heel pad with an incision, nor is a screw left protruding from the calcaneus that may require a second surgery for removal. Plate fixation does not violate the growth plate in paediatric patients. It also provides rigid fixation with an added dynamic slide compression slot for solid bone-to-bone contact.
